Here is the tale of the last 3 weeks for me…hopefully it might help others that are confused realise they are not alone.

Roughly 3 weeks ago I had what I believe now to be a spontaneous kundalini awakening. At the time I did not know what was going on and was overwhelmed by the feelings of love, connection and divinity, I therefore called it a spiritual awakening. I think this was brought on through watching various ‘new age’ videos and seeing many connections and guiding forces that had been there throughout my life. I just knew then that yoga and meditation where vital I just didn’t know how to do them so I dusted off my mindfulness book which I had never read and joined a beginners yoga class. However as I had been awakened by these videos on youtube that is where my attention lay when trying to work out what had just happened.

There is a lot of good information on youtube but there is also alot of crazy information. With my sudden lack in appetite, desire for only vegetarian food, not wanting to drink alcohol, high energy levels and endless new information its no surprise that others were worried for me. This culminated last Friday when I was shown a news article about the latest apocalypse prediction, I love a good apocalypse theory but I had never believed one before :) It all boiled down to a line in the article saying NASA had admitted that the magnetic poles movement had accelerated on the 14th July (the date I think I had my awakening). I decided that the coincidences were too great and I had to prepare to protect my family so I left work early to buy tinned food, water and a generator :) My friends and Family have all been very understanding but I wish I hadn’t had to make these events and feelings public so soon. The weekend was hard, I felt like I was defending my sanity and questioning my new beliefs while still struggling to work out what they were. I was worried what others were thinking and the extra stress it was putting onto my wife. I was also worried because the feeling of being connected to the universe and full of the joys of life had gone and I was defending something that I could no longer feel. 

I think my body needed a break. slowly I have felt the feelings return and at the same time I realised that the kundalini was the same system only better documented with more support/history. I’m not sure why I didn’t make this connection before however I am so glad to be able to name what I am going through even if people haven’t heard of it. I now feel like I can move forward and nurture my kundalini and embrace this wonderful gift bettering my life and those around me and truly finding spirituality within.

And so here I am today, I have just learnt about this form of yoga and then soon after discovered this amazing resource and can’t wait to explore your lessons and become part of the community. Thank you for reading that ramble of words it feels good to write it all down, as a last note I will be returning the generator but keeping all the tinned goods just in case :)
